ESET, a global pioneer in proactive digital protection, has topped a survey of 16 security products tested in the latest AV-Comparatives Anti-Phishing Report, thus securing the “Advanced+” mark. ESET Smart Security has blocked 99%, of the phishing websites and did not record any false positive alarm.
“In the test scenario, AV-Comparatives simulates the common situation where users rely on the anti-phishing protection provided by their security products while browsing the web,” the report said, adding "the phishing campaigns targeted various types of personal data, including login credentials for PayPal, online banking & credit cards, e-mail accounts, eBay, social networks, online games and other online services”.
For the AV-Comparatives’ August 2013 Report, ESET Smart Security 6 was tested, however Version 7 is to be launched in the coming weeks (currently in beta testing phase). This latest product will offer even more enhanced anti-malware protection and improved system cleaning. Advanced protection also includes improved anti-phishing module, the company asaid in an announcement.

At ESET, security of our customers and safe internet browsing always come first and we are glad this is proven by this test,” said Peter Stancik, ESET Security Evangelist at the Slovakia-based company.
